Cispersonnages en quête d’auteurice

April 24 to 26, 2025
Duration: 75 minutes

A troupe of professional performers meet in the rehearsal studio to continue work on a new play. Each of them comes up with scenarios and ideas to break the creative deadlock in which the group finds itself. Caught between their dramatic desires and their many ethical principles, their playing field seems full of mines and their artistic freedom rather limited.

Influenced by debates on political correctness and the identity struggles that have infiltrated the arts, Catherine Bourgeois offers us an original comedy, loosely based on Pirandello’s famous play “Six personnages en quête d’auteur”. With neurodivergent artists, she explores themes such as cultural appropriation, cancel culture and freedom of expression in an open and straightforward way.
